Hi Kathy. I believe that Jennifer Banks, whose poems I have also admired, is an editor at Yale University Press.
BTW I love the practice of making up names for heteronym "authors" or potential "characters."

Thank you, Kathleen, for the kind comments. I would be happy to send a bio. Is there an email address I can send this to?

Jennifer Banks

For all those curious, here at last is Jennifer Frost Banks's bio:

Jennifer Frost Banks has an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and has published poems in LIT, Agni, Seneca Review, jubilat, Quarter After Eight, Pleiades, Boulevard, and GutCult. Her book manuscript was a finalist for the Colorado Prize in 2007. She is an editor at Yale University Press where she manages the Yale Younger Poets Series.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
